Criminal Justice-coas | Legal Aspects of Criminal Justice System, 1
P370 | 1552 | Farnsworth


The course is designed to give a broad overview of the procedures and
interests which govern the legal aspects of the criminal justice
system.  The focus will be on police investigation techniques, the
right to counsel, the right against self-incrimination, the law of
search and seizure, and due process in the context of criminal
proceedings.  The goal is not to learn any particular area in detail
but rather to gain a working understanding for criminal procedure in
its entirety.

Readings:	To be announced.

Requirements:	There will be three tests during the semester, worth

determined from a scale published with the syllabus.
